The main beer I wanted to try (Lazy Susan) was already tapped before we got there, which was upsetting. The Not Normal ended up being really good though so I can't complain too much.

Beers I drank tonight:

Highland Park Not Normal (x2)
Highland Park Spaz
Highland Park Vacation w/ Brett (was disappointed in this one)
Highland Park Hello, LA IPA (x2)
Lips of Faith Le Terroir
Prairie Cherry Funk


Luckily they bottled Lazy Susan recently and will be releasing it in the next few weeks, so I should be able to try it unless it sells out ridiculously fast.

Seriously loving Highland Park Brewery. Fourth visit.

Unfortunately they didn't have their Hello LA IPA on tap tonight but they had some Not Normal.

Also drank some Beachwood Hop Vader, Tahoe Mountain Ms. Coco & The Delicate Oatsters, Almanac Dark Pumpkin Sour, and brought home

I cracked open a bottle of Hanssens Artisenal Oude Kriek tonight. Absolutely love it. Hugely tart unlike a lot of cherry sours I've had recently (I enjoyed Cherry Funk but was disappointed that it wasn't very tart) and only $11 for 750ml. Apparently a shelf beer and I hope it stays that way so I can continue finding it easily.

Wake Up at Michael's (lavender)

I've been on a serious local kick. Slumbrew Porter Square Porter, Jack's Abbey Smoke and Dagger, and a handful of Harpoon Octoberfests I've had kicking around.

I finally got to try Brew Dog's Tactical Nuclear Penguin (32% ABV) this week, and, surprise, it wasn't the best beer in the world.

I've been really digging on this local brewery's milk stout (Wiseacre's Gotta Get Up to Get Down) recently, though. It's so smooth and creamy that I accidentally drank a growler of it one night.

I really haven't had anything to drink since Jer came to town - and then almost a year before that.
I do remember liking glenfiddich 18, would like to try the 21 some day.
Just like kids, I bet it's amazing what 3 years can do.

Srsly love this brewery. Not necessarily the best beers I've had this year but some really great ones and the potential to be just as good as Beachwood in the next few years, and it's really nice having a local place to go to as opposed to a long hike to find a good brewery. More places should release bottles via EventBrite preorders.





Apparently their next release is a pale ale with huell Mellon hops and brett trois.

There are better LA breweries, but can't really go wrong with a beer bottled the same day you're drinking it.






Also, new Highland Park Brewery releases next weekend!

21 is good too.

At the beach yesterday, had a Hell or High Watermelon, Far From The Tree Hard Cider, Two Jack's Abbey Jabbeybrau's, and a Dark Horse Blueberry Stout.
